      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for January 5, 2017

Recommended Posts

The New Year arrived with some very moderate temperatures that were accompanied by rain in the southern part of the state, while the north received some additional snow. But temperatures took a sharp drop during the week accompanied with strong winds. Sub-zero temperatures were reported with wind chills down to minus 30.The most snow fell in the far north, and that allowed snowmobile trails to remain in good condition in a handful of counties across the north, but trails remain closed or only partially open in southern and far northwestern two-thirds of the state, according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-country ski trails remain good at the northern forests including the Northern-Highland American Legion, Governor Thompson, Brule River and Flambeau River. Some trails remain open in the southern half of the state but are in poor or icy conditions, while others have closed. The cold snap has improved ice conditions on many lakes. In the north, many area lakes now have permanent shacks placed and some people are venturing out using ATVs. Ice thickness on inland lakes varies but averages in the 5-8 inch range. With the changing temperatures, however, the ice is not at full strength and should be carefully checked before walking out onto it especially in the south. Lake Mendota reportedly froze over Jan. 1 but with some areas of thin ice.
